Ms. Price has a MS in Environmental Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has worked at LBNL since 1990. Ms. Price has been a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, since 1994 and was an author on the industrial sector chapter of IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report on Mitigation of Climate Change.

Since 1999, Ms. Price has provided technical assistance to the Energy Foundation’s China Sustainable Energy Program related to international experience with industrial sector energy efficiency policies. Ms. Price led an effort to introduce Chinese experts and policymakers to international experience with industrial energy efficiency target-setting through development of a pilot program with two steel mills in Shandong Province.

Following the pilot program, China’s National Development and Reform Commission established the Top-1000 Energy-Consuming Enterprises Program in which China’s largest energy-consuming industrial facilities were given energy-saving targets for 2010 in support of the national goal to reduce energy use per unit of GDP by 20% between 2005 and 2010.

Ms. Price is currently providing technical assistance for the Top-1000 Enterprise Program through the Energy Foundation’s China Sustainable Energy Program as well as for a number of projects focused on improvement of energy efficiency and emissions reductions in China’s industrial sector for the U.S. EPA, World Bank, International Energy Agency, and the Asia Pacific Partnership for Clean Development and Climate.
